Oh yes, it is a definite improvement. The original was just a bit desparate looking...the "new" version is full of hope and promise...not to mention smiles! You two look wonderful!

Yeah... the parody version 2 is my somewhat belated tenth anniversary present to the proud Iowans. Woot

Here is a copy of the austere original by Grant Wood:




... and here is a somewhat warmer version than the original with VM and Lefty Flash:




The above parody 1 version was probably closer to the original and also was included in our 2006 LVM Message Board Addicts poster.

I hope that Angie or Hill will use the parody version 2 as an avatar... it shows the friendly Iowan hospitality that will greet all the runners at the upcoming Dubuque Benefit Clasic Half Marathon on September 03rd. Thumbup

RE: Dear Mr. Elephant

Albert,

Very much enjoyed seeing your American Gothic II & III.

Sorry to hear about your car and your neck; at least you made it through your colonoscopy AOK.

Also, check the message board for Disneyland 1/2M plans. Pre and post race get togethers in the discussion stage. Looks like there will be more LVM'ers cheering than running this year.

--Dennis.


Upcoming:
RnR Las Vegas Marathon 12/2/2012
Surf City USA Marathon 2/3/2013
LA Marathon 3/17/2013

RE: Dear Mr. Elephant

So very glad to hear from you. We were worried about you. Tough break on the accident and the insurance thing. Sounds like things are on the mend. I hope everything continues to get better.

RE: Dear Mr. Elephant

Yes Albert, like Dennis said, come join us for the pre race get together.  We still haven't decided what to do for post race yet.  Let me bump the thread back to the top.

Dennis, Jerry, David, Teri, Donna, rkmjtk:

Thanks for your sympathies... I fared far better than my little baby with the "262SLUG" license plate:



:scared: I think that I will replace that car with one that befits my age and running speed. :rolleyes:

Oh yeah, my PT has allowed me to increase my walking from 20 minutes last week to 45 minutes this week. Hopefully, I'll be able to get back on track for the Disneyland Half. In any case, I'll like to join the pre and post get together with the LVM'ers!
